"Authorities in Fiji are assessing the damage after the most powerful storm left at least five people dead.Cyclone Winston brought winds of over 320km/h (200mph), torrential rain and waves of up to 12m (40ft).
It destroyed hundreds of homes and cut electricity lines. There are reports of entire villages flattened. The government has imposed a nationwide curfew and 30-day state of national disaster giving extra powers to police to arrest people without a warrant.
The Category-five storm - the highest level - moved westward since making landfall at 18:30 local time (06:30 GMT) on Saturday in the north of Fiji's main island, Viti Levu".
Nilesh Goundar has sent a short e-mail to say that they are safe, although property damage is extensive. This BBC photo is of Ba which seems to have been badly affected. There is an assembly there and I am waiting to hear if they have suffered.
